Actually, there's a pretty nifty native way to do this. Probably less efficient than a hash lookup, but more consistent.
Function MyMonthName(ByVal m As Long, Optional ByVal appr As Boolean = + False) As String Dim v v = CDate("2004-" & m & "-01") Dim fmt As String If appr Then fmt = "MMM" Else fmt = "MMMM" End If MyMonthName = Format(v, fmt) End Function
